Speaking to a first-time visitor to our city, he said ” On the first of December, my mom convinced me to leave behind my finals and escape to Lagos for the weekend so we could see the Christmas decorations and lights. I’ve been to my favorite city a few times before, although this would be the first time I’d go to Lagos during holidays”

So I made a small list of things to do while in our city.

Here are 5 activities to do in Lagos this weekend:

1. LAGOS DURING WEEKEND: VISIT THE BEACH

The one thing I loved the most out of my weekend in the city was to simply walk around Lagos and visit the beaches in Lagos. This free activity alone makes the whole city worth it.

2. LAGOS DURING WEEKEND: SKATING

Also, Lagos has a skating rink that is so worth the detour. The most popular one is, of course, the one we see in Maryland at Maryland Mall. Although, the waiting time can be insane, but its worth it

3. LAGOS DURING WEEKEND: SHOPPING

One of my favorite activities to do in Lagos is to go shopping. One good thing is that there are a few places around town that there is a lot of sales that are worth looking at. Furthermore, Balogun Market is full of shops that are often open.

4. LAGOS DURING WEEKEND: TARKWA BAY

Even if it’s raining outside, I believe that taking a walk on the seaside is always a good idea! The less than 50 minutes drive from Lagos Island to Tarkwa Bay is an excellent opportunity to fill up your battery after a weekend in the city that never sleeps.

5. LAGOS DURING WEEKEND: GO TO MUSEUMS

If the temperature is way too low to fully appreciate outside activities, it is always a good option to do a tour of the many Lagos museums around the city, you can get one in Badagry, the Slave Museum. For example, there is the National Museum in Onikan

If you are planning a little road trip to  Lagos, we hope this will help you make the most out of your experience!
